Hello KDT fans,

I have had many inquiries about the KDT series, so I thought I would update you all on my plans.

The main KDT series will be more than three books and will continue to follow Rezkin’s story. I also have plans for several side tales, which will be about some of the supporting characters. While at times it seems that the supporting characters are not very well developed, the story was intentionally written this way. The majority of the tale is written from Rezkin’s perspective. If Rezkin does not know the characters well, neither does the reader. The reader gets to know the other characters as Rezkin learns about them.  On occasion, however, the reader gets a little extra insight into the minds and activities of the other characters outside of Rezkin’s knowledge.  This is a bit of a reminder that the story is written in the third person, and the reader is occasionally privy to information not available to the main character (at my discretion, of course!). The side stories will give me the opportunity to share with you more about the supporting characters so that you can get to know them like I do without interrupting the flow of the KDT series.

On a side note, I actually started writing a different series prior to writing KDT. This other series is set in a different part of the same world but about 1,200 years prior to the events in KDT. Many of the historical references mentioned in KDT will actually tie in to the other series. When I was nearly finished with the first book in the other series, the idea for KDT popped into my mind, and I was sidetracked. I look forward to releasing the other series at some point in the future for you all to enjoy the greater world that spans thousands of years.

No, I do not have a release date for Book 3, yet. I am still writing it! I will keep you updated!

Thank you for visiting my world!

    Put your eggs in one basket! No other baskets needed besides kdt. Feed your kdt fans, they only want to lay eggs in the kdt basket

    Just blew through kings dark tidings in the past 2 weeks. Man, what a ride. I swear my cat has ptsd from me yelling about how good this is.

    The scene with Farson and Rezkin during the last chapter, my God, it was powerful.

    I hope those two tell each other how they feel.

    My new favourite author 😍
    I’ve devoured all of your works (well, as I write this, I’m listening to book 2 in ‘shroud of prophecy’.. ). I actually started KDT while waiting for the second instalment in SOP..
    I’ve loved every single word of all of them.. so I’m back to the waiting game…as I listen to book 2 in SOP, I eagerly await the release of book 5 in KDT…
    I can’t wait… both series are everything I love in a great dark fantasy… thank you so much for giving us these fantastic stories…

    Looking forward to book 5 of KDT. The fourth on just left too much hanging for me. I was disappointed when I finished it. I have read the 1st book of shroud of Proficiency and now 2 series or left hanging.
